Dear sir:

I am a student of B.Tech. Final year (Chemical), Zakir Hussain College of Engineering and Technology,A.M.U., Aligarh, India. I am doing a project on Solid Hazardous Wastes from electroplating Industries. Please provide me details of the various metals or non-metals their characteristics and the danger they pose to our health. I also want the details of their quantities which are produced in the electroplating industry. Please also give the various methods to recycle them.

Thanking you in anticipation.
